Thumbs up Salomon Faction Boots.. Initial Review

While I know boots fit everyone different picked these up tonight...

Past experience: I started with rental equipment like mostly everyone does.. then approximately 2 years ago made a huge mistake.. I purchased Burton Jeremy Jones boots online in the size of show I wear.. they were great.. for several trips.. then got packed out.. went to shit and had about 10 inches of heel lift..

New boots: I finally bit the bullet and went and actually tried on boots.. I ended up with Salomons in a fell size smaller that held my heel in perfect.. had TONS of padding and didn't pinch my feet in ANY way.. still have not had a chance to ride them yet.. but what an unbelievable difference.. the BOA system is hella fast.. and nice to get it exactly how I want it..

lesson learned.. NEVER buy boots online EVER.. and try EVERY pair of boots.. DON'T leave out a single option..

can't wait to actually ride without worrying about my boots falling off..
I am glad I finally listened to what I read here time and time again and went and TRIED ON BOOTS..
